Everyone knows that celebrity homes provide some amazing interior design inspiration. With access to the best interior designers and architects in the business, it’s no surprise that their homes are usually some of the most beautiful and impressive in the world. But even when their homes go on their market, they still get top-notch treatment in the form of home staging.
If you’ve ever seen MLS photos of a celebrity’s home (usually included in an article about the celebrity putting their home on the market), you’ll notice how clean and beautiful the homes always look. Celebrities rarely remain occupying their home when it’s on the market, though, so what you are seeing is actually professional home staging. You can learn some great lessons in making your home look great to buyers from these examples.
Recently, actor Chris Hemsworth put his Malibu property on the market and Elle Decor has the inspiring photographs of the staged home. Take a look to get some great tips on staging a home.
Chris Hemsworth’s Staged Home
The kitchen is a beautiful, unique space with blue cabinets and a green ceiling. To keep your eye on the features of the kitchen, the surfaces and cabinets have minimal decor on them, styling them with just enough items to give it character.
Crisp white furniture gives the bedroom a desirable hotel vibe and helps demonstrate how large the space is. The desk is a nice touch to balance the room.
An area rug and console table make this large hallway feel cozier.
A chaise is a smart choice for a bay window to show buyers how to use an awkward space.
Neutral furniture gives buyers a chance to imagine their own style in the space while still creating a fresh and luxurious atmosphere.
A simple dining room table makes sure your eye is drawn to the real selling feature of this space – that amazing view.
The layout of this living room is arranged around the fireplace and shows off how much floor space there is for a large family.
White sofas blend in with the walls and reflect light to make this space feel even more open and airy.
Minimal decor on the shelving shows off these great built-in features, while the simple round table reflects the beautiful curvature of the nook.
That incredible mirror not only looks gorgeous in the space, but also makes this corner feel much larger.
Some games show the potential of this fun loft space, which would probably be thought of as small or awkward by buyers if not staged.
Staging a home is all about quite literally “setting the stage” for buyers and taking away the guesswork. This home is a great example of the effect great staging can have on a home.
